October Ornament: Letters

E is for Elizabeth
This is my first of two letter-themed ornaments for the month of October.  For this one, I pulled out a felted wool clutch from my discard pile (after it was felted, the handles were too tight) and decided to see what would happen if I cut it up.  Turns out it makes pretty decent ornament material.  I'd made the clutch with a combination of light blue and cream yarn, so the letter has a mottled look.  I added a blanket stitch around the outside and hung it up with the rest of my collection.

**Please forgive the rusty flag bracket -- it was too windy to get a good shot of the ornament hanging on the usual evergreen tree in my front yard.
